WOOD magazine review

Precision pinner fires up to 2" pins

Review Summary

As a finish carpenter, I’ve used lots of 23-gauge pinners over the years, but none as good as these from Senco. The FinishPro 23SXP shoots 1/2–1-3/8" pins, and the FinishPro 23LXP fires 1/2–2" pins. If you never shoot pins longer than 1-3/8", opt for the smaller model. I like the 23LXP’s ability to shoot 2"-long pins for jobs like tacking and gluing crown molding to the ceiling around cabinets.
Both guns leave nearly invisible holes that don’t need filling, especially in coarse-grain woods, such as oak. I also used them to attach delicate bead molding around cabinets with no problems. The light weight of these pinners (less than 3 lbs each) makes them easy to use overhead when tacking up trim. And the swiveling air-hose couplers prevent the hose from dictating how you hold the tool. Add to that the tiny nose on each tool, and it’s remarkably easy to place a pin precisely where you want it. Although each nailer comes with two no-mar nose tips, neither gun left an indentation when used without the tip. The front of each tool opens easily with an included hex wrench, but neither gun jammed during testing. —Tested by Jeremiah Barnett for WOOD Magazine
